If you’re wondering how to look after your heart health, stay tuned because we’re about to explore this one together. Fun starter fact: did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the US? That’s one in five women, with around one in 16 having coronary heart disease. The UK doesn’t fare much better either, with it still being in the number one spot.
Not that this is meant to induce a sense of existential dread. That would just be plain mean. But a little education goes a long way, right? And knowing that your heart (health) is in your hands is an empowering thing. Trust us. This is your mini-guide with practical tips (including CBD for heart health) to show your heart the TLC it deserves, so it can keep pumping strong for you.
Stats aside, looking after our heart comes down to good old plain common sense. Eating healthily, exercising, you know, all those types of things. Sometimes a little reframing is needed here because effectively, this stuff is all about self-care and self-love. It might feel like you’re loving yourself when you’re binging on a bucket of ice cream on the sofa, but your heart says no. (But we’re totally with you if that’s your guilty pleasure. Sometimes. That sometimes is the key.)
If we’re talking about the traditional risk factors that play a part in developing scary old heart disease, here’s the rap sheet:
A good question here is, what the heck do we do now you’ve shared all this scary stuff? Well, we have some answers, worry not. Here’s the antidote to that frightening list up there.
To start, think of it as a wellness plan with self-care management tools that will nurture your heart, your health overall, and your mental wellbeing at the same time. This isn’t about starting a punishing routine that you hate (and drop) but making life-long changes that make you feel good inside and out. Here are some starter tips:
All cannabinoid therapy varies from person to person and is also true in terms of cardiovascular health. The results and effectiveness highly vary on the person, the administration method, product cannabinoid profile, timing, and dosage. For heart health, it’s recommended to take CBD consistently for potential preventative and overall wellness benefits. We also recommend taking CBD as-needed to combat stress which is a significant risk factor for women and heart disease. Remember, you should never solely rely on CBD for improving your cardiovascular health– it should be one of many self-care management tools you utilize in addition to healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits.
We recommend self-experimenting with dosage and timing to find what works best for you. When it comes to understanding the effects of any new supplementation, it’s also wise to keep a journal where you track your dosage, timing, and any risk factors you have. This can give you a clear set of data points for creating the proper CBD regimen for heart health, stress, and other contributing factors, allowing you to better understand how it affects you.
If you are taking any medication for blood pressure, cholesterol, or other heart diseases, it’s vital to speak to your doctor before trying CBD. CBD can cause potential drug interactions and may also further lower blood pressure.
Tip: Try incorporating our Glow Capsules into your daily wellness routine for overall cardiovascular support.
